Never a dull moment: got a call from the water department last evening: a water main burst two houses away, and they had to shut the water off today,, what a mess, but fortunately, I was at work for the whole thing,, neighbors next door have a mud/ice pit in their front yard!!

Last night I dreamed that I was at The Grand Floridian basking away in their spa, being massaged by Vito, the magic-fingered Italian masseusse, when the power went out, water got shut off, Vito ran screaming like a girl, out of the spa, leaving me there with my (pride) hangng out,,
Big handsome guy runs in, whisks me off to the private sauna, starts massaging my feet, whispering sweet nothings in my ear, and all I heard was.......................................
BUZZZZZZZZZZ!!BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!! Alarm clock blaring in my ear!! Four A.M.!! Time to get up and ready for work!!
On a brighter note, it DID get p to 29 degrees today, so that was really close to that sauna!!!

new furniture!

Thursday, November 18, 2010

We went to the furniture store after visiting mom,,
I bought a new chest of drawers and double bed, mattress and box springs for Kristy.. her old bed fell apart, it was old and a hand-me-down form my sister-in-law and brother-in-law back in 1980!!
Timing is bad but gotta get her off my Lodge futon and back in her room!! Beautiful bed and dresser,, nicer than mine!!
Early Christmas gift to her!!
Of course, being the bargain shopper that I am, I got $100 off the mattress, $200 off the bed, and no sales tax.. promo from store if you spent a certain amount!!

BUT THE BEST PART OF THE WHOLE DEAL IS........................................
Guess what I got free!!
I got a real jen-you-wine SERTA sheep!! He is the blue-eyed one that talks on tv!!!
I jokingly asked the salesguy when he was going to give me one of those sheep ,, he walked to the back and got me one!! They had a big pink one on a mattress, but he was not a take out one!!
MIne is so cute!! I am going to put him on one of my posts(I have a four poster bed)

bridal dress fitting

Saturday, November 13, 2010

We went for our first fitting for length alterations on our dresses this afternoon,, we just needed the straps taken up a bit and the hems taken up a bit,,

I stopped at the nursing home to visit my dad's only living sibling, Carol,, she had a stroke a few years ago and we visited for over an hour, I have not been able to get to her in over a year,, told her all about everything going on here,, she is in a private room now, was glad I stopped to be with her, instead of sitting in Barnes and noble to read before my bridal appointment,,
Sometimes when I plan something selfish like that, I decide to visit somebody I have not seen in a long time instead,, I never regret it..

She never married, has only a seven nieces, I am the only one that lives within ten miles of her, so she never gets any company,, she is only 67,,

it is the time in my life when I see that my days are so numbered, that I will not live to an old age with this bad family health history, so want to let her know that I did not forget her,,
I am so blessed to be able to drive, to have a car, to have fuel for that car, can remember how to get there, can walk, see, talk, etc,, I NEVEr take any of that for granted,, been without lots of things my whole life, material and ethereal, so know how it feels to be without,,
I thank God for His blessings for me..

    I thought that was so touching...how our days are numbered and so on. Brought a tear to my eyes. I have no children and my mom has dementia so I see the writing on the wall. I always hope when I am like my mom that my neices and nephews will visit me. Bless you for caring. And may I ask is it you that is getting married?

Okay, so it is decided: we are all going to Maui, one bag per person, no underwear, boots, coats, thongs(flip flops or otherwise) phones, boob-tubes(tube tops) ice scrapers or socks allowed.
Swimsuits, coverups, pedal pushers, sandals and sneakers, nighties and tees..
one spark exercise piece per sparker,, deflated ball, bands, or yoga mats, DVDs..
No scales , calorie counters, measuring cups or tapes!!
this is a calorie-free, guilt free, fun filled trip with sand, exotic oils, drinks, foods and people..
One church outift per person,,
PACK YOUR BAGS!! REMEMBER, THE SKIMPIER THE CLOTHING, THE MORE YOU CAN FIT IN THE BAG!! OR wear everything on the outside of your clothes and you will have a whole section of the plane to yourself!! Nobody will want to sit near you looking like that!! Except me,, I can fit lots of unmentionables over my clothes!!!

Just ask the airport fondlers in Orlando, Phoenix, San Francisco, L.A, San Juan, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas, Shepherd Air Force Base, Texas, Las Vegas(nobody noticed in Vegas)....
